We’ve taken a look at seven of the best GTX 1060 laptops currently available and rated and reviewed them based on their price, hardware, and features.
We have now compared the best GTX 1080 laptops and the best GTX 1070 laptops and today we’re going to take a look at the best GTX 1060 laptops, too. Where laptops with GTX 1080s and 1070s in them are going to cost at least ~$1,500, you can get a laptop with a GTX 1060 in it for as low as ~$950.
And, while a GTX 1080 or 1070 laptop will perform at a higher level than a GTX 1060 laptop, for 1080P gaming, a GTX 1060 laptop should give you really solid performance. So, if you don’t quite have the budget to get a GTX 1070 or 1080 laptop, but you still need a laptop that will give you a high-end gaming experience, then one of the options listed below should work for you.
*NOTE: Since every laptop listed below has a GTX 1060 graphics card in it, they will all deliver a similar experience in games (with exception to the option below that has a 4K resolution screen), so the ratings are mostly based on the extra features that the laptop comes with.
